It’ll be available in the Google Play Store in the United States, but I honestly can’t tell you if it’ll hit other countries. Me being in Finland, with lots of friends in the UK and various Asian countries, I hope that Facebook is smart enough to let everyone get in on the Home action.

Facebook Home is going to launch tomorrow.

What is it? It’s a replacement Android launcher that takes over nearly every part of your phone. It changes your lock screen, it changes your home screen, it changes your app launcher, and it also installs this neat little messaging client called “Chat Heads”.
